Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas have taken their baby out in public for the first time.
Understandably, the couple have kept a low profile since their daughter, Malti Marie, was welcomed into the world last year.
The one-year-old was born prematurely in January 2022 before spending 100 days in the NICU, and fans of the couple have long been waiting to see her for the first time.
Well, they got their wish as Malti Marie made an appearance this week as her dad and the rest of The Jonas Brothers received their star on the Walk of Fame in Hollywood.
Photos of the baby girl being held by her mum at the glitzy, star-studded event have been shared online. And she already seems to have her style on point, wearing a beige suit and white headband.
She even got a mention during Nick's acceptance speech.
"Malti Marie, I can't wait to come back here with you in 15 years and embarrass you in front of your friends," he joked.
The singer went on: "To my beautiful wife, you are the calm in the crazy, the rock in the storm, and I love being married to you.
"It is the greatest gift. I love being a parent with you."
Priyanka, who is currently expecting her second child, recently opened up about her decision to have Malti Marie via a surrogate.
The 40-year-old said that it was medically necessary in her case.
"This was a necessary step, and I'm so grateful I was in a position where I could do this," the actor explained.
“Our surrogate was so generous, kind, lovely and funny, and she took care of this precious gift for us for six months."
In a message to her critics, Priyanka said defiantly: "You don't know me. You don't know what I've been through.
"And just because I don't want to make my medical history, or my daughter's, public doesn't give you the right to make up whatever the reasons were."
Speaking about her decision to protect her daughter from the media spotlight, she added: "I've developed a tough hide when people talk about me. But it's so painful when they talk about my daughter. I'm like, 'Keep her out of it'."
The star said she and Nick - who got married back in 2018 - were stood there watching as their newborn baby was intubated.
"I know what it felt like to hold her little hands when they were trying to find her veins,” she said.
"So no, she's not going to be gossip."
She added: "I've been really protective of this chapter of my life with my daughter. Because it's not about my life only. It's hers too."
